A sprawling wasteland lies before you, wiped out by the centuries-old atomic blasts of The Great War. Beyond a smattering of desolate hills, you can see the charred remains of a society that hints at its former glory, its decadent progress. It is across this wild landscape you must now travel, building a new life atop the crushed beauty of a destroyed world.
Fallout is an adventure board game based on the hit video game series by Bethesda Softworks. In the game, one to four survivors will begin at the edge of an undiscovered landscape with one primary objective: to survive. Staying alive, however, is just the beginning. Players must explore the hidden map, fight ferocious enemies, and build the skills of their survivor as they attempt to complete challenging quests and balance the feuding factions within the game. To win, players must collect valuable influence, thereby securing their spot in a society struggling to thrive in a world forever changed.
Ask a hundred Fallout fans to define the franchise in a word and you'll get a hundred different answers. The universe of Fallout is loved for many different reasons, from cap collecting to deathclaw slaying, from pledging one's loyalty to a faction to aimless wandering. All of your actions in the game, however, are driven by a story, and this game gives players the opportunity to relive their favorite moments while telling their own stories anew.
Whether you’re a Fallout fan for its sinister cheer, the tense uncertainty, or the sheer joy of being in Dogmeat’s company, you’ll feel right at home in Fallout: The Board Game.
